They should last you for much longer than their less sustainable counterparts.

Frequently Asked Questions
Hemp is one of the greatest, if not the greatest earth-friendly alternative to plastic and other unsustainable materials and fabrics used for everyday objects. Hemp plants grow quickly, can be harvested in a variety of ways, and are completely biodegradable and compostable. The use of hemp will reduce the amount of plastic in our land, and with that, help reduce the number of harmful chemicals that are released into our environment.
Hemp straws are also a good alternative to single-use paper straws. First, they don't give this distinctive paper taste to the drink. Secondly, they don't absorb liquid and become weak and soggy, disassembling in the drink or in your mouth. Lastly, they have a similar bendable feel to plastic ones, unlike paper straws, which will simply break apart. And with that, they can be washed and reused multiple times, as, unlike other eco straws, they allow for multiple uses without disintegrating.
Needless to say, using a hemp straw and other products is one of the best things you can do to reduce your carbon footprint and help save our planet. Single-use plastic straws will become a thing of the past, and you'll be contributing to that! And with this large package of eco-friendly hemp straws, you'll be able not only to show that you love our Mother Earth but also save some money along the way.
Can I Use My Hemp Straw Multiple Times?
These hemp straws are manufactured from strong, fully-biodegradable hemp-based plastic (HBP) that is made from hemp, sugar cane, and natural plant resin, meaning that they can be reused without losing their shape or quality. In contrast to other eco-friendly alternatives, such as paper or bamboo straws, hemp holds up well for long periods of time, allowing you to use them over and over again.
You can expect them to last you for over a month, depending on how often you use and wash them – some may begin degrading even 80 days after the first use. And if they bend, you can simply bend them back with your hands, and they will most probably regain their shape. If you want to clean them, simply rinse them with water.
Do Hemp Straws Give Off a Hemp Taste?
Probably the biggest benefit of a normal plastic straw over a paper one, besides the fact that it’s reusable, is that it doesn’t give your beverages a specific paper taste. Fortunately, the same goes for hemp straws, which don’t affect the taste in any way either. Thanks to the plant-based formula used for production, they won’t absorb liquid, thus won’t become weak and soggy or disintegrate in the cup or your mouth.
So, no matter whether you want to use them for your favorite summer beverage or a cup of hot coffee, you can rest assured that they won’t affect its taste in any way. You can just drink your coffee or lemonade and forget about the fact that you’re using a hemp straw - or use it to your advantage and impress your friends with your environmentally friendly alternative to single-use straws.
Are Hemp Straws Biodegradable?
Yes, they are. These hemp straws are made from 100% organic USA-grown hemp, which means they don't contain any pesticides, herbicides, or other harmful chemicals. As they can fully biodegrade, they will not contribute to the pollution of our beautiful Earth in any way - they won’t end up in landfills and will ultimately decompose without releasing any harmful chemicals into the environment.
You can also throw used hemp straws in your compost bin, as they are compostable as well. As such, they will decompose into natural, nutrient-rich organic matter. It's a much more sustainable option than single-use straws, which you can't help but throw away after each use. And with this large box of eco-friendly hemp straws, you'll be able to forget about the struggles of fossil fuel-based straws.
Do Hemp Straws Contain Any CBD?
Although the name could suggest so, no, these hemp straws don’t contain any CBD - or at least not enough to have any effect. They are made from hemp-derived material, which is purified and processed in order to create hemp composite, which is the key ingredient of this product. Since the processing and purifying process removes the unnecessary parts of the hemp plant, they don't contain any CBD.
Furthermore, it is worth noting that the amount of CBD, THC, and other cannabinoids in various hemp cultivars can vary significantly, and so, the cultivars that are rich in those compounds are usually used for CBD oil, tinctures, and other CBD products. Since the purpose of hemp plastic is to be used for eco-friendly items like these straws, the amount of CBD in the raw hemp material used to make them is not worth mentioning.
Are Hemp Straws Legal?
The legality of CBD products is still a bit of a controversial topic, as the laws can vary significantly from country to country and even states within a country. However, as these hemp straws don’t contain any CBD and are not intended for human consumption, they don't require to be USA FDA approved, at least when it comes to CBD or THC-related laws. Apart from that, hemp-derived compounds have been used in products for decades, making this hemp product perfectly legal.
How to Store Hemp Straws?
Just like any other drinking straws, these hemp straws should be stored in a dry place, preferably in the original packaging box or bag, as this way, they will be protected from the elements that can cause residue or other harm.
Although hemp composite is generally water-resistant and does not absorb liquids, keeping them in water or any other liquid for a prolonged period of time could cause them to lose their shape, so make sure to store them properly when you're not using them, wash in cold water, and dry thoroughly after each use.
